What have you learned from a young person recently?

As Adora Svitak artfully demonstrates in her TEDTalk, being open to learning from our youth is crucial for improving our world.

TEDxYouthDay 2011 (www.tedxyouthday.com) is two months away -- a day dedicated to empowering and inspiring youth on Universal Children's Day (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children%27s_Day).

In preparation for this upcoming event, what anecdotes do you have about how you have learned from youth?
